The present review has the objective of summarising chronobiological aspects of shift work and obesity. [...] Key Method There was a systematic search in PubMed databases, using the following descriptors: shift work; obesity; biological clock. Shift work is extremely frequent in several services and industries, in order to systematise the needs for flexibility of the workforce, necessary to optimise productivity and business competitiveness. In developing countries, this population represents a considerable…Expand
Metabolic impact of shift work.
TLDR
The present review will discuss the impact of shift work on obesity and metabolic disorders and how disruption of sleep and circadian misalignment may contribute to these metabolic dysfunctions. Expand
The influence of shift work on metabolic health
Recently, the world literature has been actively discussing the effect of circadian rhythm and sleep disturbances on human metabolic health. One of the most socially significant causes of circadianExpand
Dietary and lifestyle habits and the associated health risks in shift workers
TLDR
The present narrative review aimed to summarise the data on the effects of shift work on the diet, lifestyle and health of employees, while addressing the barriers to, and opportunities for, improving health among shift workers. Expand
Shift work and its association with metabolic disorders
TLDR
This review aimed to identify highlights regarding therapeutic implications following the association between night and shift work and metabolic disorders, as well as the mechanisms and pathways responsible for these relationships. Expand
Health consequences of shift work and implications for structural design
TLDR
How light can be used as a countermeasure to minimize circadian disruption at night while maintaining alertness is discussed and implications for the design of newborn intensive care units are also discussed. Expand
Assisting shift workers through sleep and circadian research
TLDR
The present review addresses the health, safety/performance, and psychosocial issues associated with shift work, and some promising countermeasures including sleep and circadian approaches have been proposed. Expand
Consequences of Circadian Disruption in Shift Workers on Chrononutrition and their Psychosocial Well-Being
TLDR
The nature of shift work, sleep/wake cycle of an individual, chrononutrition, dietary habits, and meal changes with regard to timing and frequency, related to shift work are discussed. Expand
A review of the impact of shift work on occupational cancer: Part 2 – mechanistic and health and safety evidence
TLDR
Suppression of night time production of melatonin and/or obesity remains the most plausible biological mechanisms for an association between shift work and cancer. Expand
Shift work and hypertension: Prevalence and analysis of disease pathways in a German car manufacturing company.
TLDR
The association between shift work and hypertension seems mainly attributable to behavioral mechanisms, which was mediated by BMI, physical inactivity, and sleep disorders. Expand
Healthy Diet And Reduction Of Chronic Disease Risks Of Night Shift Workers.
TLDR
A healthy diet and improved dietary practices, together with other factors, can reduce shift workers' chronic disease risk and educational programmes are necessary to encourage several important lifestyle changes. Expand

TLDR
Preliminary evidence was found that rotating shift work increases the risk for developing the metabolic syndrome over a period of 6 years. Expand
Metabolic disturbances in male workers with rotating three-shift work. Results of the WOLF study
TLDR
A significant association between shift work and lipid disturbances (i.e. low HDL-cholesterol and high triglyceride levels) was found and any association with hyperglycaemia was found. Expand
Effect of shift work on body mass index and metabolic parameters.
TLDR
The shift-shift workers showed a significantly larger increase in BMI than the day-day workers, and these tendencies remained after adjustment for age and all other confounding factors, such as BMI, smoking, drinking, and leisure-time physical activity at baseline. Expand
Shift work as an oxidative stressor
TLDR
Shift work can act as an oxidative stressor and may induce many medical disorders and aging and obesity in shift workers makes them more sensitive to this hazardous effect. Expand

Shift working and risk of lipid disorders: A cross-sectional study
TLDR
It was concluded that shift work is a risk factor for lipid profile disturbances and high serum total cholesterol and LDL-C level were more common in shift workers than in day workers. Expand
Main and interactive effects of shiftwork, age and work stress on health in an Italian sample of healthcare workers.
TLDR
Shiftwork with nights and high work stress significantly interacted in increasing the risk for poor sleep, and the "healthy worker effect" may have played a strong role in study findings. Expand
The Nutritional Status and Eating Habits of Shift Workers: A Chronobiological Approach
TLDR
The changes observed in the workers’ eating habits from one season to another and during the 24 h period show the need for further studies to help develop educational programs to improve the nutrition of shift employees taking into consideration shift schedule and season of the year when work is performed.
